When our neighbor listed his house and sold it just a few days later, we were excited. We thought that it would be great to have someone new living next to us.
But there were red flags the first day they moved in, with the most noticeable one being their cat wandering around in our yard. When we confronted the neighbor, she told us that it was an indoor cat and we had nothing to worry about.
That was the first lie of many.
As the weeks went on, their cat continued to be outside in our yard, and it proceeded to use our yard as a litter box. Where we once had flowers, there was only dead plants.
We had to do something.
While we approached the administration at our town office, they could not do anything to help us.
We had to take matters into our own hands.
After trying a number of home remedies to get rid of the cats, we decided to try a commercial cat repeller to keep the cats out of the yard. It took a bit of trial and error to find the right places where to setup the repellers, but after we had things figured out, it worked very well. I loved that it was a safe way to deal with the cat problems in our yard in such a way that it was safe for our kids as well.
The cats were gone. Thank goodness.
